WAORC Points are tight at the top

Posted on

Its tight at the top in the WAORC Outright points chase as we have a mix of 3 different classes duking it out in the top 3. First outright with a consistent run so far is Mat Birnie in his SXS Turbo class CanAm X3. Just 2 points behind is Darren Agrela who has taken a pair of wins in his Undecided Racing Jimco. Sitting in third place and ready to pounce on any mistakes is the Carnarvon Motel Racing Sportslite of Peter Barrett.

Throughout the class battles there is plenty more tight points chases with 3 rounds to go. In Pro Buggy Darren Agrela and Brad Cooper are closely matched with Troy Schoen and Marcus Wells snapping at their heels. Prolite sees Mal Yeardley with a strong lead, but he will be wary of the chasing pack of Percival, Metaxas, Knowles and Joyce. Michael Davis has a strong lead over Peter Mellington in Super 1650 as the magic man looks to claim back to back Super 1650 titles. Extreme 2wd is tough to split with Phil Shepley, Daniel Fahey, Russ Cullen and Kent Dunham all evenly matched across the opening three rounds.

Mathew Beck has shown great consistency and pace to lead Performance 2wd over Karl Richardson and Jordan Russell. Production 4wd has the diesel power of Graham Bentink leading the way from Aaron Griffiths who is having a fantastic run in his debut season. In Extreme 4wd Peer Horn holds a slim lead over Mark Murray whilst SXS Sport is a one horse racing with Jason Galea in his Yamaha YXZ. SXS Turbo is very evenly matched with Mat Birnie holding a small lead over Gavin Rodgers with Sean Fitzpatrick in 3rd and Mark Harris at the head of the chasing pack in 4th. Peter Barrett is on one hell of a run in Sportslite with 3 consecutive class wins and leads Joe Hawkins in 2nd with Scott Schiller and Deon Visagie locked on equal points in 3rd

As all eyes turn to the Mid West Challenge the second half of the season is going to see some cracking racing!
